Hi 

Who makes the best quality transmission mounts for my 64 Sedan DeVille (with a Turbo hydramatic)? Rock auto does not list them.

Thanks!

I know Steele Rubber will revulcanize for $135. Kinda steep so you might check around. Here is the link:

Caddy Daddy has a repro for $79, and rebuilt for $145, plus $100 core. I purchased the repro and it looked pretty good, everything lines up. It is presently on the transmission, but the driveline is still out of the car, so I have not used it under power yet.

Here's a link to the repro -->  https://www.caddydaddy.com/shop-parts.html?cat=580&prod_year=498

Thanks. I don't think my current one is bad, but it is still original and there's no reason not to freshen it up. Question: Do you have to take the driveshaft out to replace?

Thanks

Norm

No, You shouldn't have to. Loosen all four bolts first, then remove them. Get a small piece of plywood or something that fits against the transmission oil pan, then jack it up a little with the wood and a floor jack. You should be able to slide the old mount right out. I don't think you would even need to disturb the crossmember itself.

In my case, the trans had a massive leak in that location, and the oil destroyed the rubber part of the mount. If that seal is bad, the driveshaft DOES have to come out for that.

Thanks! 

One more dumb question. Does it "relieve" the weight on the tranny to loosen the driveshaft center support bolts thereby allowing a bit of upward movement of the drive shaft when the tranny is lifted? Or am I overestimating the amount of travel required of the transmission in order to permit the removal of the mount?

Thanks

That would probably be a good idea. It would provide some slack for movement.

Thanks!

V.I.N. where?

Posted by Robert Pellow on April 18, 2021 at 1:41pm 6 Comments

Where can I find the V.I.N. on a 63 convertible?  The usual space at the base of the interior windshield on the driver's side has been decimated by weather.

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 1 Comment

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob

Car lift and jack stands

Posted by Les Eastling on March 23, 2021 at 10:00am 4 Comments

I mentioned during the 63/64 chapter zoom meeting on 3/21 that we had installed a car lift in our garage. Someone asked what kind and I didn't have the info at hand, so here is a link to it and also a link to some tall jack stands we use to add more stability to the car and an additional safety factor. There is something about getting underneath one of these cars that makes me a little nervous! …
